Dennis Patchin, Rick Lukens and Vince Grippi talked to EWU Athletic Director Bill Chaves about the Eagles Men’s and Women’s basketball teams, the possibility of the Big Sky Tournament finding a scheduled home, and paying college athletes. Bill is on the council trying to figure out the details of how this will play out.
